A Tall Stack of Books

Did you guys catch Alaina Kaczmarski's tour on The Everygirl (which she co-founded!) last week? I love everything about her apartment, from the archways, to the neutral colour palette, to the really really tall stack of books:

This book stacking is a technique that Alaina used in her old apartment as well:
 via Live Creating Yourself
I love the look! At first I worried that I would knock them over daily, but then I noticed that if you look closely the books are actually supported by a rather cleverly hidden bookshelf.
This also means you don't have to unpile a million books to get to the one at the bottom.
While Alaina got hers at West Elm, The Everygirl sourced similar shelves from CB2 and Design Within Reach! Perfect for book lovers like myself.

I think it looks great too. Any chance to have books in a room and I'm all for it.

These are great "invisible" shelves for creating sturdy stacks of books. I'd like to add one more sourcing option to your list - Indigo/Chapters carries them in black and white!

A stack of books like this can add so much interest to a space.

I love this! I just might have to steal this idea. Perfect for narrow wall space.

I love that apartment! I'm someone who always has a ton of books in my book, and I love showing them off instead of hiding them away. Chapters has a similar stacking stand, as well!
